10777 Jubilee Time; Celebrating Women, Spirit, and the Advent of Age
Maria Harris
Bantam Books
ISBN 0-553-37467-2
S - Seniors / SH / Book
Jubilee Time celebrates the freedom, opportunities, and power of older women, who are too often maligned in our youth-obsessed culture. Based on the Jubilee passage in Leviticus--"You shall hallow the fiftieth year. It shall be a Jubilee for you"--this practical and philosophical book helps women assess what values and beliefs they want to carry forward into the second half of life.
A Jubilarian herself, Harris draws on her own experience and cites others--including May Sarton, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, M.F.K. Fisher, Florida Scott-Maxwell, Doris Grumbach, as well as more than one hundred "ordinary" women--to reflect the variety and vitality of this unheralded community. In lyrical prose punctuated by exercises and meditations, she invites readers to rest and reflect, stop and take stock, celebrate and cultivate the rich rewards of a mature spirituality.

10774 Play the Ball Where the Monkey Drops It; Why We Suffer and How We Can Hope
Gregory Knox Jones
Harper San Francisco
ISBN 0-688-17142-7
C - Care / CJ / Book
Why must we suffer? Gregory Knox Jones tackles this enduring issue of life with clarity and intelligence, offering hope to anyone who is struggling with the pain and confusion of unjust suffering. Dr. Jones recounts the life stories he has seen in his work as a pastor: parents losing their child in a car accident, a runner coping with the amputation of his leg. Every day good people suffer, raising the question: Why is this so, if there is a just and all-powerful God? The response that God works in mysterious ways that are beyond human understanding simply isn't adequate in the face of such profound suffering. Dr. Jones, who has more than twenty years' experience in the parish, found that he had to rethink his ideas as he ministered to people in pain and grief. The wisdom that he gained enabled him to lead people through the most difficult circumstances to healing and new hope.
Now, in Play the Ball Where the Monkey Drops It, Jones gently guides us through the inadequacies of the traditional solutions to the problem of evil, offering practical and compassionate answers to the deepest questions rooted in the experience of everyday life. Notable for its relevant real-life examples and its clarity, this book offers guidance and solace to anyone who has ever

10770 Do Yourself a Favor...Forgive; Learn How to Take Control of Your Life Through Forgiveness
Joyce Meyer
Faith Words
ISBN 9780446547277
C - Care / CM / Book
Building on her signature message of using the mind to master difficult emotions, Joyce Meyer focuses on the most destructive, insidious one of all: anger. It is responsible for broken relationships, sleepless nights, high blood pressure and ulcers. It destroys friendships, marriages and families, not to mention peace of mind. Anger is especially hard to handle for many Christians who have learned from childhood that "good Christians don't get angry." Meyer argues that properly handled, anger is an alert system that something is wrong and needs to be resolved.
10769 Saving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls
Mary Pipher
Ballentine Books
ISBN 0-345-39282-5
PA - Parenting / PAP / Book
Why are more American adolescent girls prey to depression, eating disorders, addictions, and suicide attempts than ever before? According to Dr. Mary Pipher, a clinical psychologist who has treated girls for more than twenty years, we live in a look-obsessed, media-saturated, "girl-poisoning" culture. Despite the advances of feminism, escalating levels of sexism and violence--from undervalued intelligence to sexual harassment in elementary school--cause girls to stifle their creative spirit and natural impulses, which, ultimately, destroys their self-esteem. Yet girls often blame themselves or their families for this "problem with no name" instead of looking at the world around them.

Here, for the first time, are girls' unmuted voices from the front lines of adolescence, personal and painfully honest. By laying bare their harsh day-to-day reality, Reviving Ophelia issues a call to arms and offers parents compassion, strength, and strategies with which to revive these Ophelias' lost sense of self.
